What are the benefits of associating with Little Elly?

Little Elly’s curriculum is designed on the desired outcomes of preschool education principles of Maria Montessori and Rudolf Steiner (also known as Waldorf method). These methodologies are considered to be some of the leading education progams in the world. We are one of the few preschools that integrate the curriculum with our multimedia Early Learning Program.
Little Elly’s parental involvement is positive, practical and personal. With our guidance and support, parents are able to ease their child into his/her first school experience. We go an extra mile to give each child and the family the opportunity to contribute to the preschool program through participation and sharing of skills. • Structured curriculum and ongoing support • Marketing support • Ongoing operational support • Research and development
Little Elly helps teachers and staff to discover the joy of being with children and exploring fresh, fun and easy teaching techniques. We have the Initial Teacher’s Training program for all teachers.
Little Elly has an outstanding track record with more than 120+ centers across India, present in 6 states. It works on the concept of a neighbourhood pre-school so that a young child does not have to travel long distances for a good, happy and fun education.
